Last night’s return of Glee proved Ryan Murphy’s unwillingness to kill any characters from the hit show so far. After a 7-week hiatus, I expected there would have been some sort of shocking revelation, either Quinn’s sudden death or the end of Finchel as we know it (even though I admit, I wouldn’t be crying tears of joy about this).
It might seem crazy, but I was overly excited to learn more about Sue’s pregnancy and discover the sex of her little monster. It was also much appreciated to get a glimpse of Blaine’s older, obnoxious, actor brother Cooper Anderson (Matt Bomer). Was it just me, or did anyone else notice the how close his name resembles that of Anderson Cooper? And did anyone else wish they’d been Sue and had Bomer take a look at their breasts before signing them? Oh well, a girl can dream can’t she?
Besides the obvious, here are five things I learned from last night’s episode “Big Brother.”
1) Broadway is apparently dead and in order to become a big name Hollywood actor, according to Mr. Anderson, one must literally point and yell whenever they read lines. He also advises the gleeks to think of a roast beef sandwich when working with a fellow cast mate to distract yourself from making eye contact with them. Somehow they buy it.
2) Blaine and Cooper really love each other and are more than just brothers, they are friends. After taking constant criticism from his older bro, Blaine lashes out at him and they recover by singing Gotye. Ummm… Blaine, do you not see how much more talented you are than your brother? Cooper mentions how jealous he is of his younger bro’s talents. I guess that’s why they call it tough love or is it in brotherly love?
3) Rachel may be all gung- ho for New York, but is Finn looking to L.A. for
his their future? When Puck reminds Finn how much money and fun (read: meeting hot chicks) the boys can have cleaning pools in L.A., Finn second-guesses how much Rachel loves him compared to Broadway. This leaves the pair in another argument, but how can a girl choose between the “love(s)” of her life?
4) Sue Sylvester’s pregnancy (no confirmation of who the father is) takes a sudden turn when she learns her little girl might have down syndrome. Taking the advice from her partner in crime and fellow cheerio, Becky (who also has down syndrome), Sue learns to become more patient with the glee club to prepare for motherhood. Aww I thought I’d never see the day!
5) Quinn seems surprisingly chipper and positive in her wheelchair after the accident. Where is that nasty b*tch that hated having a bad hair day, let alone making friends with the school’s uncool? Will she really be able to walk again or as Artie believes, does she need to face reality? Also, I felt major vibes when they went to the skate park on senior skip day. Is a hook-up in their future?
